Hello mod-summas ^_^ It's been a while since I last thanked you but I wanted to say it here first. Thanks for putting up with all the negativity here to keep the site going! Love wizzie -Runs off-

Am I the only one feeling somewhat troubled by the lack of professionalism exhibited by the mods today?

I feel like the mods should be infallible. Like priests or something similar.

1. Mods should make a Twitter account to keep us up to date if they ever go down again

2. If Wizmin entirely disappears we need a common place to meet up and regroup. We almost lost each other forever, when it looked like Wizchan went down for good again. And theres no Merlinchan or Magicchan to flee to anymore.

Twitter is overkill, a status text page on a free host or a pastebin is both technically easier and more anon-friendly.

If the site goes down then the first thing you should check is the dreamhost status twitter

We need a place Wizs know to go BEFORE it goes down. Otherwise its just lost wizmods howling to the moon

The fap thread has no business being on any board besides /b/. I have to hide it every time they make a new one but never before seeing some super disgusting porn. Please just move it to /b/. People who want to find it will be able to go down to the abyss and access it.

only if politics is moved to /b/ and we also delete /dep/

do we have a deal??

We have been through this.
The answer is no.
It doesn't violate the rules and we aren't going to start banning things just because you personally don't like them. As you said, you can hide it if you don't like it.

Be honest, wizchan is just a larping site at this point. If we did a roll call it'd just be a bunch of teen and 20-something wizkids and a handful of actual wizards.

for a long time this clause of the rules section has irked me:
>social activity: An activity that at its core involves socializing, like going to a bar, party or club. This includes things done together with friends, like visiting a cinema. This, however, does not include simply having friends, or just making contact with another person in real life (e.g. a cashier or therapist).

this bugs me because "having friends" implies to some extent "doing things with friends" which is defined above as social activity, which goes against rule 3:
>Do not post about voluntary real life social activities (e.g. going to a bar or party).

encouraging or promoting social relationships/friendship should be seen as going against the spirit of the site, and can be viewed as contempt for the reclusive lifestyle of rule 4:
>Do not disparage or show contempt for the celibate, NEET, or reclusive lifestyles.

at the very least, discussing friendship on /wiz/, a board for the wizard lifestyle, should be discouraged, or else we get these kind of posts

I really don't get that guy, he's constantly hammering away at people and arguing at how hikikomori is an extremely specific thing and defends it as though it were his sparkledog Deviantart OC. To him being a hikikomori is some horrible tragic thing caused by nebulous 'social pressure' that needs to be fixed so he can be a happy normalfag, as you can clearly see in that post. He also seems to have disdain for people who are actually mentally ill or are satisfied/happy with being a recluse. Yet at the same time, he is somehow not a failed normalfag who will ditch places like this once his 3d stinky Misaki suddenly appears to save him from the horrors of being shutin. If you disagree with him he turns on you like a rabid dog.

> i argue the best and most healthy version of the Neet lifestyle is being a Neet but with a social life
>hikikomori by the definition are unhappy lonely inept people who cannot adapt to society and failed at life
>by the definition (hikikomori) are self loathing shut-ins
>being a hikikomori is something negative
>being a hikikomori is a negative thing and not something to be proud of
>i also would argue that being hikikomori actually takes some mental strength, and that people who are just average generic Neet shut-ins are failed normalfags

he isn't right, and i'm curious how you can even think that. all of his statements are either wrong, a matter of his opinion, or the opinion of society.

why cant i make a rage thread, content may or may not be political, could be news or threads or events

why not just put /b/ at the top section
>example: [ Home ] [ b ] [ wiz / / hob / lounge / jp / meta / games / music ] [ all ]
but remove /b/ posts from being displayed on the home page, or /all/? (similar somewhat to how /meta/ is not displayed on /all/)

that way they could actually feel making their threads there isn't a total complete waste of time, maybe the other boards become better as a result. i didn't seriously think this suggestion through, but gonna post it anyway because maybe someone else can build on it

522e4 No.48940

You can on /b/
It is just too low quaintly for the surface boards.

The exception being a thread talking about the emotion of rage in a more meta context, in which case it would probably make a interesting thread on /dep/ or /wiz/, but I highly doubt you have the mental ability to discus that particular subject.

522e4 No.48941

Silly newfag. If you want that all you have to do is click on the little star at the top of /b/ and it will appear
>[wiki] [b] [watchlist]

5cc67 No.48944

it's not up there by default, which is the only way it could herd what i'm perceiving as non-native posters into /b/

it's also placed on the right side by doing that, separate from the other boards

32e30 No.48948

In fact /b/ was the first thing I've seen here, typing it in the address bar by habit because nearly every other chan has this section and people expect it to exist.

I think it's time we finally had a frank discussion about the greatest contributors to the toxic attitude here: failed normies.

Now first, let me explain a little what I consider a failed normalfag to be. Essentially, a failed normie is someone who lives his life much the same as other wizards, as an outcast, a neet, a loser basically, but unlike wizards, they still buy into the normalfag system and desperately try to define themselves and their own pride and identity through conventional normalfag means. Most of them I believe have authoritarian personality disorder so I will copy the wikipedia definition here as it provides great insight into the psychological mechanisms at play here.

>Adorno et al. (1950) viewed the authoritarian personality as having a strict superego that controls a weak ego unable to cope with strong id impulses. The resulting intrapsychic conflicts cause personal insecurities, resulting in that person's superego to adhere to externally imposed conventional norms (conventionalism), and to the authorities who impose these norms (authoritarian submission). The ego-defense mechanism of projection occurs as indicated when that person avoids self-reference of the anxiety-producing id impulse, by displaying them onto "inferior" minority groups in the given culture (projectivity), with associated beliefs that are highly evaluative (power and toughness), and rigid (stereotypy). Additionally, there is a cynical view of humanity and a need for power and toughness resulting from the anxieties produced by perceived lapses in society's conventional norms (destructiveness and cynicism). Other characteristics of this personality type are a general tendency to focus upon those who violate conventional values and act harshly towards them (authoritarian aggression), a general opposition to subjective or imaginative tendencies (anti-intraception), a tendency to believe in mystic determination (superstition), and finally, an exaggerated concern with promiscuity.

>In regards to child development, the formation of the authoritarian type occurs within the first few years of the person's life, strongly shaped by the parents and family structure. "Hierarchical, authoritarian, exploitative" parent-child relationships may result in this personality type (Adorno et al., 1950, pp. 482–484). Parents who have a need for domination, and who dominate and threaten the child harshly, and

You can't filter them anyway. Good luck.

Seems like a lot of projection to me. You're the one who harshly looks down on others, the "failed normies", for ego reasons.

Adorno is nonsense anyway btw.

I know it was probably a big pain in the ass to get this place up and running again and I think a heartfelt thanks is in order.
So I give thanks to all involved in getting the site back up and running.
Thank you.

Hello Wizards,

In order to increase the userbase, I've decided to join forces with other sites to foster an exchange of users. I've been in talks with another admin, and I'm proud to announce that we've just entered a partnership with crystal.cafe! Therefore, the following changes will take place:

-Witches will be allowed on wizchan
-We'll add links to their imageboard
-A new /witch/ board to go together with /wiz/
-Female moderators to add diversity to the staff

On top of that, in order to make wizchan a welcoming place for witches, there will be a new rule to stop abuse towards them, akin to rule 4.

That's all for now. I'll announce it here as we make new partnerships, there are some big ones planned. Stay tuned!

This is the first time in more than a year since I've posted on this site, only to see this message.

Absolutely hilarious. I just visited crystal cafe and it basically is everything that is wrong with this site.
